WHAT DOES BEING SAVED MEAN?

Being saved means that we will never be separated from God again. It means that we have been reconciled to Him by the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ. I have been born-again, spiritually, and am now indwelled by the Holy Spirit. It means that we have now entered into a personal relationship with a Holy God and loving Father, through Jesus. Also, we have become new creatures in Christ and that our lives are now His and we no longer have to look to the world for our identities, happiness, acceptance, salvation, or security. We are free from the penalty and punishment of sin which is death (spiritual) and eternal separation from God. We are saved from the control of the enemy and his plans to destroy us, free from a life full of fear, guilt, shame and bitterness. Free from trying to fill voids that nothing seems to fill beyond temporary. It is not easy, but oh so very worth it!!!
